Wrong 'Spaceman' Used On Banner Promoting ACE FREHLEY's Performance In Tampa

Original KISS guitarist Ace Frehley will conclude the Lightning Concert Series presented by Volkswagen with a show after the Tampa Bay Lightning vs. Ottawa Senators game on Friday, March 11 at 7:30 p.m. The concert will be held outdoors on the West Plaza stage immediately following the game.

According to KissAsylum.com, a banner advertising Frehley's post-game performance features a photo of Tommy Thayer — not Ace — as the "Spaceman." Check out the banner below.

Ace Frehley, who was better known as "Space Ace," was the lead guitarist for legendary rock band KISS from 1973 to 1982. He would continue to lead a successful solo career selling millions of albums with his new band, FREHLEY'S COMET, as well as other albums under his own name. However, in 1996 he rejoined his former band members as the official KISS reunion tour would emerge and soon become the largest grossing tour of '96-'97. He provided his musical talents for the 1998 "Psycho Circus" album and would end his time as a member of KISS in 2001 on the "Farewell Tour". His last solo album, "Anomaly", was released in September of 2009.
